Daily COVID-19 Update: April 30, 2020

Dear Bereans,

This is the update for Thursday, April 30, 2020.

Kentucky update

Yesterday Governor Beshear announced that there were 184 new cases in Kentucky and 10 more deaths.  These numbers are in line with us being on the plateau.  Another focus of his report was the plan for a gradual re-opening of businesses and other activities, to start on May 11th and extending throughout the month.  Very little of what we have had to suspend is included in the first phase of re-opening.  Childcare centers, for example, are not included anywhere in this first phase.

If you are interested in the details, one good source is this one, from the Lane Report.

In a normal year, we would be celebrating the end of finals today!

Lyle Roelofs, President
